Although the Magic won’t have any players participating in the big game on Sunday on All-Star weekend they’ll have ample representation in the Jordan Rising Stars with rookie Paolo Banchero and sophomore Franz Wagner both involved.
As the league inches toward the trade deadline, it’ll be interesting to see if the Magic make any moves. There are whispers Orlando is interested in Fred VanVleet.
While they’d likely prefer to approach this in the offseason if other teams are jumping to get the young vet now it would behoove them to outbid the competitors.

- Jonathan Isaac, PF (Probable — knee/management)
After producing inarguably the best month of his young NBA career Anthony Edwards got reminded there are always other levels to reach as he failed to make the cut for the All-Star reserves.
The team sitting in sixth probably didn’t help his cause of the depth and quality of backcourt players, particularly in the West. De’Aaron Fox also didn’t make the team and had an even better argument.
Minnesota opponents score 115.0 points per game ranking 19th while the Wolves limit them to 46.5% from the field and 36.6% from deep ranking sixth and 24th respectively.
On offense, the Wolves score 115.1 points per game ranking 10th while shooting 49.1% from the field and 35.4% from the perimeter ranking fourth and 19th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…

- Karl-Anthony Towns, C (OUT indefinitely — calf)
- Taurean Prince, SF (Questionable — ankle)
- Bryn Forbes PG (Questionable — ankle)

Minnesota has looked the best they have all season with Karl-Anthony Towns still out and often without Rudy Gobert in the mix. Edwards is ascending to the next level of stardom and is showing signs of being able to lead his young teammates.
AntMan needs to emulate the young Dame Lillard and use the All-Star snub as motivation and take it out on each team and smile at the coaches when he leaves the court following wins.
